Submission + - ALDI sells Conficker-infected hard drives->

mukimu writes: "Supermarket ALDI has been selling malware-infected hard drives in Australian stores, prompting the country's Computer Emergency Response Team (AusCERT) to issue an security alert to users on behalf of the government.

ALDI has had to issue a recall on the products, which contained components of Conficker, and remove the product from its stores.

AusCERT noted that the worm should be picked up by antivirus given it is extremely old and past its hey day when it infected Australian Banks and transport infrastructure."
